Top Ten Tuesday (2)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.  

Since summer is right upon us, let's talk about beach reads. When I go to the beach, I slather on the SPF 30, stuff a towel in my PINK beach tote, pop on my super reflective sunglasses(think Top Gun style) and throw in a good book to read (when not people watching). So I give you 10 of my favorite summer reads.

1. The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger- This is a light, fun read. From the first page until the last, I was giggling. It started out as giggling and ended up in full belly laughs. I could almost swear my abs got quite the workout when reading this book. Who knew that the fashion world was that hilarious?

2. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling- Potter is a given. If it's your first time reading it, welcome to the magical world. If it's your umpteenth time reading it, you always find something new while reading. Once the last movie has been released, it will officially be the end of my childhood. I grew up with Potter (books and movies) and it will all come to an end soon.

3. How to Marry A Duke by Vicky Dreiling- In honor of the new season of The Bachelorette, I had to throw this book in the beach bag. This is The Bachelor meets Jane Austen's Emma. The Duke of Shelbourne hires matchmaker Tessa Mansfield to find him a wife. Tessa finds 24 of societies darling debs who must go through a series of tasks and hilarity ensues.

4. The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series by Louise Rennison- A light, fun and mindless read. I mean, with titles such as Dancing in My Nuddy-Pants, On the Bright Side I Am Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God, Knocked Out by Nunga Nungas and Stop In the Name of Pants! who wouldn't want a good laugh?

5. Gossip Girl series by Cecily von Ziegesar- My first YA series. It's an addicting read. Who doesn't want to find out what S and B are up to? What about N or C? Who IS Gossip Girl?
6. Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione- This is the first in her Lords of Deliverance series which is a spin-off of her Demonica series. Recommended for 18+. This is the story of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse like you've never seen them before. An EPIC battle to save the world has begun. 

7. The Duke and I by Julia Quinn- Oh the Bridgerton's. This is the first book in the series and it is another fun read. Friend meets best friend's sister, sister is off limits and you know what happens when sister is off limits: secret feelings, awkward moments and a lot of giggles (from the reader).

8. The Rake and the Recluse: An Illustrated Novel by Jenn LeBlanc- Time Travel? Check. Feisty heroine? Check. Brooding hero? Check. Sexy photos? Check. Wait what?! Sexy photos? Yuppers. This is not your child's illustrated book. It's Outlander meets Jane Eyre. And there's pictures. Haven't you always wanted to know what the hero REALLY looked like?

9. Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian- Vampires, Rogues and headstrong heroines, oh my! The fight for the human race has begun. And their defenders are a group of sexy vampire warriors. Recommended for 18+. No sparkly vamps here.
10. The Sinners on Tour series by Olivia Cunning- 18+. When I think summer, I think of the beach, a fun book in your bag, parties and outdoor concerts. This is a fast paced read. Sexy rockstars, their groupies and of course the women who turn them into one-woman men. 

What about you? What's in your beach bag this summer? Leave link so I can visit you.
